Who Are We and What We Do?

The Foundation was formed in Australia in 2002, just after Professor Cosan passed away. Since then, the Foundation has been an advocate for many disadvantaged communities and provided financial, social, psychological and spiritual support for the implementation of various humanitarian projects. Our overarching goal is to focus on social justice in society and address the physical, material, social, cultural, psychological and spiritual needs of needy communities.

We serve with sincerity and invest time, energy and resources in the furthering of social justice, thereby fostering peaceful, prosperous, and just societies. We are dedicated to providing guidance and direction towards addressing the root causes of problems while at all times being solution focused.

We acknowledge that ‘serving the creation for the sake of the Creator’ is a challenging task. It involves commitment, confidence, knowledge, expertise and faith. It requires coordinated efforts of various stakeholders, their collaboration and enthusiasm. This is only achieved by systematic planning and preparation. It is this reason that leads us to our slogan ‘prepares you’. At MEC Foundation, we utilise all our resources to help prepare you for the better.

Main Precisions

Reaching those in need

We see those in real need as those who have rights over Qurbani and identify those in need, specifically in the areas of distribution, with help from local caretakers (community members).

Awareness of Worship

We distribute the Qurbans to those in real need through the awareness of the worship and the efforts of our volunteers.

Hygiene

The slaughtering process is conducted with the control of a veterinarian, in a sterile space, with professional butchers. The meats are stored in refrigerated storage rooms and are distributed in packages.

Distributed from hand to hand,
with kindness.

The Qurbans are distributed to those in real need through pre-organized coupons distributed to those in real need. We pass on the Qurbans to those in need with respect and by saying “This is a gift from the Muslims of the world!”
